    Basically, I am trying to figure out if I should wait for the s2 or get the droid charge. I can not find definitive answers to two questions that will sway my opinion as what to do: (1) Will the s2 have 4g? (2) Will it be released before vzw implements tiered pricing?

    Thanks!

    You can't find answers to those questions because none exist at the moment. All we can do is speculate on both those questions for now and i know I for one am wondering the same things. I want to get in on this unlimited 4g buffet while I can but don't want to do so with a device I don't truly want (I.e. the thunderbolt / Droid charge).

    The current 4g devices are built with old tech. Why would I want to buy a phone with a single core processor when I can see dual core phones rolling out left and right on other networks? Verizon seems to be perpetually behind the times when it comes to adopting new tech. *sigh*

    I am going to wait for the s2 myself. I am also throwing around the idea of evo 3d, but sprint coverage isn't as good as verizon. I just hope the s2 has 4g or its out for me. Verizons 4g phones are really unimpressive right now.

    Ok, take this how you will. I recently got a TB just to lock in 4g unlimited data. I got it at a decent price on ebay, as i want to use my upgrade on a better phone. So when i go to verizon to activate my new 4g phone and change my plan, she activates my phone and hands me it back with new 4g sim card and says have a nice day. I say arent you gonna change my data plan to 4g, she replies O its the exact same plan you already have. There isnt a "4g" plan. All data plans are the same, the only difference is if you have a 4g capable phone you will get 4g speeds when you hit a 4g area..
    So, like i say take it how you will. I got a 4g phone activated to lock on the data, and then got told i didnt need to. I was going to do the same for my wifes phone but now we will just wait for bio.

    Hope this helps. Also i have looked at verizon online and my plan is exactly the same. No change and i get 4g.

    Tiered plans are coming once the network is more established. The CEO of verizon stated so. His bogus reason was because some people were using too much data and slowing the network down.

    Listen to this guy please everyone and to me also, I have inside sources that work for Verizon wireless and how this is working is like this. ( feel free to call 611 but not all reps know this) If you have a smartphone right now example droid, droidx, blackberry and it has the $29.99 data plan then YOU ARE LOCKED IN. Meaning if the tiered pricing rolls out tomorrow and Monday you go pick up a 4G phone you will NOT be switched to pay tiered data prices you will keep your unlimited for the term of your contract.

    This is incorrect. 3g UNLIMITED data is locked in. When you add 4g data you are changing the terms of the contract and will no longer be grandfathered.... This is why I got Verizon to keep the 4g data on my bill when I returned the TB.

    You only get to "grandfather" until you change the terms of your agreement.

    I have a picture of the receipt on this forum somewhere, but yes... I'll take a pic and post it in a second.

    Attached... You could've just taken my word for it....

    "4g Data Transport"
    "4g Application Access"
    "4g Internet Access"

    Don't ask why I didn't just prtscr and paste.... I had a massive brain fart....

    Right, but 4G isn't a separate data plan. It appears that it's a non-contract altering add-on.

    That's not what my rep told me. I said plainly "let me keep the 4g data or I'm going to Sprint" (an empty threat)... And the rep said "trying to lock-in unlimited 4g huh??" Which to me means that they will not grandfather 3g plans... That would be stupid anyway, why would they EVER make tiered plans if the 90 million current subscribers were not going to be required to get one??? Think logically....

    Because when most people get a new phone, they do so at subsidized pricing, renewing their contract.

    But I guess we'll find out soon enough.

    We sure will... But I figured I'd show what a 4g plan actually looks like since some people were acting like I was stupid for saying that my contract plainly says "4g internet access" on it....

    Maybe you can get "unlimited data" without having to change your plan, but you won't have "4g internet access" or "4g data transport" which basically means you'll have unlimited 3g.

    No that's not what it means just because it says 4G does not mean its a plan, I'm getting this all from people that work AT verizon that DO this for a living and if you have unlimited data your locked doesn't matter if you have a 4G or 3G because in the end your paying for the DATA not 4G or 3G but take it as you want.

    No one debated that it said 4G somewhere. The issue is whether or not adding 4G constitutes a change of contract. Add ons typically do not trigger a contract alteration. In this case, the data plan portion of your service, which is unlimited, did not change. You just had 4G access tacked on. I'm sure the 4G access needs to be added to provision 4G for the line, but your data plan - that meters data use, remained the same.

    I think it says in the user agreement "contract subject to change". But if you sign up for unlimited data now for 29.99 with a 4g phone they most likely will not change the price until your contract is up for renewal...hence all this grandfathered in talk. I had web 2.0 on my old feature phone 1 year after the $5 per mo feature was discontinued...but in all actuality vzw can do what they want, they are huge corporation with a bazillion lawyers.
